    Hmm... to reduce cost for the SKU maybe?
    At least we know that it wont be required to use the system like with Xbox1

    If this is the case, then this means:

    -Xbox One will definitely be more expensive
    -Microsoft has certain advantages, since they know every owner has a Kinect hooked up. More games will use it, if not all games in some way.

    I was thinking the exact same.
    Would potentially make the PS4 more appealing on price point.

    Wonder how much it will be though

    It'll probably only be a ~$50 camera anyway so not like it's gonna knock a ton off the system, whereas Kinect 2 will be at least $100 most likely.

    Very welcome news! I like using my PS Eye and all, but I do stick it right behind my TV when not using it. I kinda worried that if the camera was mandatory that the console would act retarded if it couldn't see the user during normal use. That would have been a deal-breaker for me.

    I'm sure Sony asked developers about this too and weighted their opinion into the decision.

    Yeah, voice commands and other stupid gimmicky crap are really an advantage, lol. This is a really smart for Sony to do this. I really only see little kids using Kinect and if people want it on PS4 they can buy the camera separately. I think we can probably confirm the price for the PS4 is $400 if this is true.

    I thought I remember seeing that at the end of the video, but when I searched for those videos on Youtube I couldn't find it anymore (guess I was look at the wrong channel)! I am glad to see that they aren't forcing it on people, but I bet they have at least two SKU's at launch and I am I guessing the upper priced SKU will include the camera. Maybe we will see a $350 SKU that is just the base system without the camera and a $400 with the camera...

    This really changes things up. The XBone has the Kinex2 as part of the base configuration and won't even power up without it connected. The camera can be turned off but the microphone has to be left on for the voice commands to work. The Kinect launched at $159, it's about $100 now. It's going to add to the baseline configuration cost. It also looks like the XBone has a power brick, it's not on the motherboard and there is no space in the case for a power supply.

    Yeah, it really floors me that they went with a power brick again, yet another turn off...

    Yep that's what I've been saying. That's probably why the specs are weaker, so that they can launch at the same price as PS4 (and MS will probably lose a small amount on the HW at launch too), whereas Sony are launching with a profit. I think $400 each at launch.

    Glad to see this. If there was a mandatory camera or must have camera in use at all time requirement, I wouldn't have purchased a PS4.

    This is good news. I really didn't want the eye. Glad they are not going to be bundled. Although I'm sure the well have a separate SKU. Keep the cost lower!

    Great news. I really don't care if these consoles come shipped with a camera that needs to be plugged in but i'd rather not have to be bothered with it.

    Sounds like Sony is doing everything right with the PS4. No DRM, no packed in camera. Pack a headset in that baby and promote PSN to the moon and you're good.

    Good point but when you think about it, a dual shock will come with the system. So why say that the camera is sold separately if it comes with the system as well?
